This package also delviers, which by accident lost a
symbol, making the library ABI incompatible with the old one.

This shows with various applications not starting when this has
updated (most notably probably chromium)

If you did not yet update libpci3, I recommend for now to lock it
(zypper al libpci3) - this will keep version 3.4.1 around. The next
snapshot should hopefully already solve this (chromium got a
against the new lib and will use the new provided symbol).

There is also an update of pciutils 3.5.1 pending, which restores
missing symbol so that stuff that currently fails will not have to
rebuilt in the future.

Dear Dominique,

And what are we going to do if we have already updated the libpci3
My Chromium does not want to run and in konsole it reacts with:

/usr/lib64/chromium/chromium: relocation error:
/usr/lib64/chromium/lib/ symbol pci_init, version LIBPCI_3.0 not defined in file
with link time reference

Where could I find the version 3.4.1? And would a downgrade give me a

Old RPMs, as usual, are kept for a short time on the mirror exactly for
such cases.

rpm -Uhv --oldpackage

might help it...

you might be easier off getting the new 3.5.1 though at:

(better to go forward and fix it than back and break other stuff)

Have taken the plunge forward and now Chromium seems to work.
Thanks for the assistance.
